Oliver Twist is a nicely decorated pub in the heart of the Zurich Niederdorf. The interior is very Irish/British and athmospheric. Beers and food are all excellent and staff is ver friendly.

Quite a nice place to spend the evening. They also have an exterior area. Quite some beers, a bit pricy though. You can also eat. Takes quite a while because not enough staff but szill a nice place

My colleague and I were working in Zurich over a recent weekend. We found the Oliver Twist via a recommendation at our hotel and indeed, we watched England v Italy rugby with good friendly company. It is a lively pub with both Swiss and other nationalities making up the customers. The screens show all sports and beers are varied and... More

If your pub crawling in Zürich, I would recommend this place as the atmosphere is interesting. There are a number of nooks and crannies that have couches, the Decor is truly Irish, they do have dartboards and televisions. I would say it is a nice place if you have a group of people walking around old town.

I'm terribly disappointed by this place, it was the most unpleasant dining experiences I've had in Zurich so far. I went there with three other friends on a Tuesday night and the pub was not that busy. We ordered burgers and nachos and it took about 40 min for the food to be served, after solicitation. The burgers were cold... More

We were looking for a cheap place to have lunch and ended up at this pub.

Looking for a place to catch the Detroit Lion's football game on Thanksgiving... this place had it! Plenty of seating to walk in and sit down. Decent selection of beers. Went with the bacon burger, which was average. Sweet Potato fries were awesome. Good atmosphere. Worth it to be able to watch American football!

Actually I really like this pub. So I came here almost every week in recent months. The pub is cozy, I like the selection of meals and drinks and the staff is basically friendly (and they are doing a good job).

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, authentic-looking inside, intimate yard at back, great for live sports...but...the food wasn't up to scratch. I had fish and chips. The portion was way too small and the price was way too high...and they forgot the mushy peas!
